Pretty neat one. The beat is good and goes well with the lyrics, however some parts were either a bit weird or really messy. 4/5

Thank you! I will think on improving on that. :)

Wow, I was not expecting to review a pop song in this competition. Interesting. The first thing I noticed was that you didn't compress the audio into oblivion here, which makes some of the subtler elements still audible - this is appreciated. There are a lot of cliches here (trap samples, lyrics, Autotune,) but the reserved tone that comes as a result of mixing (as well as the snapping during some parts) add a bit of original flavor. Production is tight and the vocals sound good, but most of the musical ideas here are bordering on vapid. Also your ending is really awkward and sudden.

Thank you for your comments, Kwing! I aim for catchy pop with a slightly melancholic and soulful twist. The autotune I'll need to work on making less obvious. The vocalist wasn't too confident so I plan on rerecording that with another vocalist and keeping the original rap intact. I do adore a lot of pop cliches but with a melancholic twist. But I agree that the ending is awkward and I plan to change that. Again, thank you so much! <3
